Our Lapsang Souchong tea is created in the mountains of China, where the leaves are dried on bamboo over smoking pine wood fires. It's one of the oldest tea-making methods in the world, and it gives the leaves a uniquely deep, rich, smoky flavor.

If you like a smokey tea, you'll love this Lapsang September 26, 2014
Reviewer: G. Kline  
In the world of tea, there are a few varieties that stand out like a sore thumb. They have a very peculiar taste and probably a small subset of tea lovers partake of them. Lapsang Souchong might very well be at the top of the list.

Prior to this tea, I had sampled a few other brands and never really liked Lapsang Souchong. For those who don't like it, you'd probably be inclined to describe it as a brew of burnt rubber or factory soot, with just a hint of campfire. Not something you'd be craving to try again.

Well, on a lark I decided to try Taylors of Harrogate Lapsang Souchong, and I'm very glad I did. Taylors got it RIGHT. This tea is very smooth and has a pleasant smokey aroma and taste. You really have to stretch your imagination to conjure up thoughts of burnt rubber when sipping ANY Lapsang Souchong tea, and why would you want to when you can really enjoy it? Comparatively, this tea is better than Twinings. I have both and tried them side by side. There was no contest--Taylors won.

So, if you have already tried Lapsang Souchong and haven't quite found a version that suits you, look no further. You've found it with Taylors. :-)

excellent subtly smokey tea September 26, 2014
Reviewer: Edane  
I make no claim to being a tea expert. I simply like to drink tea. This one makes a nice change. The flavor is gently smokey and smooth; one could call it lapsang for beginners :-). If you find you enjoy its gentle smoke then be daring and try lapsang souchong which is _very_ smokey indeed. Go easy on the amount, a little goes a long way, and give it a few minutes to fully unroll its leaves. Then enjoy!

Excellent Tea September 26, 2014
Reviewer: Jenny  
f you are familiar with Lapsang Souchong tea and like it you should consider this one. It is a little lighter and smoother than some other versions of this type of tea and I like it very much. If you have never tried Lapsang you should try a cup at a local tea shop before buying. Lapsang has a smokey rosin sort of favor and is something of an acquired taste. For those of us who like it, however, there is no substitute.
